Emulsion Silo Design

05/08/2012 9:44 AM

Can any one provide what's ever info. About designing an emulsion storage silo of 36000 gallon, considering all the features as the insulation and the steel plate thickness, also the mixing unit inside the silo, the pipes diameter, fabrication of all the stuff related to the storing process. As this gona be an evaluation to my engineering skills in my new job, thanks to all.

if you're talking about an emulsion (Not an agitator)

With that amount of volume your processing you'll also need a re-circulatory pumps........but I'm getting ahead of myself.

You need your product properties.

Thermal Properties,

- (is it going to be heated)

- Is it heat sensitive?

Mechanical properties:

- viscosities

- Allowable shear

I not thinking clear today, but at this point that is all I can think of.

Oh yeah, what is your process time.

After you get this, then we can move on to how your going to emulsify. Knowing what kind of product is also helpful. Hopefully these are not non-newtonian fluids.

When doing this, Always define and set your goals that you want to achieve, don't be so vague..

What engineering skills are you talking about.

The ability to go to strangers and ask them to do your work for you hardly qualifies you as an engineer.

Who did your work for you in school?

Frankly, I never saw a 36,000 gallon emulsifier.

I designed a 500 - 6000 gallon ones. and that was challenging

Neither has the OP. He probably never will at this rate.

This is the kind of question (and person) that makes me crazy.

Apparently, someone is paying the OP to design something about which he knows nothing. He's not even smart enough to trick us into giving him answers.

I wonder what are the statisics of liabilty and punitive case increases are in the legal system.

And when a statement of defense is, 'its not my fault, fill in blank googled it at cr4'

Dear lyn Thanks for your comments I'm a power mechanical engineer and such a design needs to be illustrated in different shapes to choose which will meet the available material and space also the fund, and due to my lack of production engineering skills, so I asked for helping me in configuring alternative designs to it, hopefully it's clear to you now and sorry for the inconvenient reply I posted earlier.

If you don't know how to do it, stay in your current job.
